Captive Chains by Raymond Pettibon is the artist's very first publication. Includes a thirty-nine page narrative titled Captive Chains, followed by single page drawings. According to Roberto Ohrt's The Books 1978-98 (which includes a catalog of Pettibon's early zines) "Pettibon drastically reduced his storage space during the 1980s. Piles of books went into the trash, especially copies of Captive Chains (with a printing of 5000) and of titles distributed by SST (before the end of 86, usually with printings of 500). One can assume that no more than 100 copies of a printing circulated."
